In this week’s episode we capture our trip to the Transamerica corporation. They hired us to do 3 shows in 2 days. It was apart of their diversity group, promoting opportunities for people with disabilities. We performed for over 1,000 Transamerica employees in two different Cedar Rapids locations. We performed at Theater Cedar Rapids back in September of 2012, because of our good friend Kent Stock, and some of the powers that be at Transamerica were excited to bring our message to their people. After months of planning and scoping out exactly where these shows could take place, it was time to make it happen.
This episode has everything to do with disability awareness, inclusion, and diversity. Having cerebral palsy is tough enough, adding in some travel and the problems increase, that is for sure! The mission of Handicap This is to open minds, break down barriers, and lift attitudes up. They do this by educating, empowering, and entertaining with their shows and their speeches. This trip is a testament of their commitment to their message.
What could happen at a Chic-Fil-A? Will it rain again? How will their TV interview go? Will Chris find the right tripod? Will Denis make any new friends?
